First Father's Day

I posted this on my baby blog and thought I'd share:

What a day this was! Lets start off with, Jackson went to sleep at 10:30 pm and didn't wake up until the next morning at 6:00 am! Longest sleep thusfar, have had several 5.5 hours or the usual 4 hour stretch and a one time 6.5 hours, but never 7.5 hours! I fed at 6:00 and laid him back down. Around 7:15ish I heard some fussy noises, sucking and "talking". I didn't go in and check, I just let him do his thing and was going to wait until he cried as I usually do. This continued for about 10 minutes then I heard some crying, not hardcore, but it was worth checking out. I walk in and see him laying on his back, sideways, feet sticking out the slates! He rolled over! Since I laid him on his stomach, opposite end of the bed too, I knew he somehow managed to end up on his back way down the other side of the crib, sideways at that. Dang, an active kid we have here! I exclaimed "You rolled over!" ran to grab my camera for proof. He was in such a good mood the whole day too. Very happy and smiley. He played with daddy most of the day.

He slept during the majority of our breakfast at Sweet Tomatoes. He took a 2 hour nap in the afternoon, so did mommy :) and daddy took a small one too. It was such a nice quiet afternoon and much needed. Later that night he was more fussy during our supper at Tom's BBQ, but we made it through by lots of holding. Daddy was presented with a picture frame for his desk, 3 pictures of Jackson holding D and A to spell out DAD.

Jackson loves his daddy. He smiles and coos and has a great time with him. I think we all enjoyed our first Father's Day together.

That's such a sweet idea for Father's Day! Also, I'm guessing Sweet Tomato is a restaurant...what kind of food is served? Besides

It is a casual-buffet style with all natural food, no presevatives, fresh off the farm, never frozen, cooked fresh. check out their website:

We've only done breakfast there, but intend on doing lunch sometime.
